A group of young Palestinians fights at the gates of the Negev desert against the Israeli military occupation. "Youth of Sumud [steadfastness]" try to return to their people the land taken from their families, restructuring the ancient cave village of Sarura. They face aggression with their nonviolent actions, defending themselves against rifles with their own cameras; they oppose desolation and death with hope and life. Ten years after their first documentary on the nonviolent struggle in the West Bank, the directors return to the village of At-Tuwani to tell how the children portrayed in the film have grown up in the meantime, using archive material of more than 15 years.
